Flavors of dark fruit are present, plum black cherry, and others. Medium body and lightly dry. Seven years of aging suits this vintage well.

Mild aroma of dark fruits. Medium dry plums and blackberries. A medium dry finish.

Green pepper and ?green?wood on the nose... nothing off in the smell.. just hard pin down. The taste is earthy, medium tannic, fiiggy with barely a hint of cherry. This wine is not a fruity wine. Minerals, earth, and green astringent stems overwhelm any fruitiness this wine might exhibit. I don't hate it, but I surely don't love it!

It'll do in a pinch. Some Cabernet characteristics, but pretty fruity and lacks complexity.

Got at central market. Good bold flavor. Sits well on back of tongue. Not too sweet but smooth.

More accessible than I expected from a wine this young.
